Pedro Vianna Faria

Pedro is currently completing his PhD in History at the University of Cambridge sponsored by the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (Capes). He has a B.A. in Economics and a M.A. in philosophy (Federal University of Minas Gerais, UFMG). As an undergraduate, he researched macroeconomics as a member of the Tutorial Education Program (PET), an undegraduate scholarship sponsored by the Brazilian Ministry of Education. Students working as a PET researcher develop independent research on a topic of his/her choice under the supervision of a senior member of the faculty. Pedro then moved to an undergraduate research assistantship on the Scottish Enlightenment sponsored by the State of Minas Gerais Research Foundation (Fapemig). His M.A. on the same topic was sponsored by the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq).

Pedro's current research focuses on the relation between history, moral philosophy and social theory. His PhD thesis analyzes those relationships in the intellectual development of David Hume, Scottish philosopher and historian, and his early eighteenth-century contemporaries. Pedro is supervised by John Robertson and Chris Meckstroth.
